Nothing will cheer a man up quite like some motherly love. And after Green Bay's heartbreaking loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday's NFC championship game, that's just what Packers running back Eddie Lacy got.

The 24-year-old Lacy posted to Instagram his lovely text conversation with his mother, Wanda.

The first few texts are from pregame and the last is after the Packers' loss.


The first message, about playing in the mud and rain, is likely a reference to the weather in Seattle (it rained during most of the afternoon).


Lacy hails from southern Louisiana, and the final text is a reference to one of region's specialty dishes.

Lacy finished the game with 21 carries for 73 yards. On the season Lacy finished seventh in the NFL with 1,139 rushing yards and was considered one of the more prominent Pro Bowl snubs.
